We'll fight Wikki in Bauchi, says Abia Warriors striker Agoha

22 July 2016, 17:52

Lagos - Abia Warriors striker, Chinenye Agoha has said that they will give Wikki Tourists a run for their money when the two sides meet in this weekend's week 28 Nigeria Professional Football league encounter at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi.

Agoha who scored the only goal in Abia Warriors' 1-0 victory over visiting Warri Wolves last Sunday in Umuahia, said the win is a sign of better days ahead as the Umuahia capital city side have overcome their worst moments this season.

"We had some bad results in the recent past mainly because of the injury which hit many of our key players but we have overcome that now and ready to reestablish ourselves as one of the best in Nigeria", Agoha, a mid-season signing said.

According to the Afugiri, Umuahia-born hitman, who joined Abia Warriors from Giwa FC of Jos, the Emeka Inyama boys have made up their minds to fight for a good result in Bauchi this weekend.

"We know Wikki is good this season, we are also good and that is why fans should expect good football this weekend", he said.

Agoha, who was one of the players released by the League Management Company (LMC) to join a club of their choice after Giwa was thrown out of the league for not honouring three matches earlier this season, said he has already warned his captain and friend at Giwa, Charles Henlong who is now with Wikki Tourists, to get ready for him as Abia Warriors were not in Bauchi on a picnic but on a serious business.

He said he was pleased the way the league is being run now as anybody can pick points anywhere without any incidents and commended the LMC and the referees for a job well done so far.

Agoha revealed that many clubs requested for his signature when they were released from Giwa but said he decided to "come back home" to join Abia Warriors because of the professional way the club is run.

News24 reported that Abia Warriors broke the home invincibility of FC IfeanyiUbah in this year's Nigeria Professional Football League after holding the Anambra Warriors to a goalless draw at Nnewi in one of the week 14 games that took place across the nation.
